Currently, in one of my Android apps, I provide an very obvious way, for user to delete/ move from list of items.
- “X” button to delete
- “=” button to move
Now, I’m porting such page to iOS app.
When I look at iOS common app, they usually do not provide such obvious way to move/ delete from list of items
In order to move/ delete from list of items, user need to perform 1 extra step: Tapping on top right EDIT button.
Edit mode after tapping on top right EDIT button
I am more lean toward bring the more “obvious” design to iOS platform. Reason is that
- User needs not to perform an extra step (Tap on EDIT button) in order to delete/ move the items
- It is not easy to accidentally press “X” or “=” button, as they occupy small space
- Such design is proven in Android ecosystem. A large number of users (More than millions) just love this design.
Do you think, should I adopt this design in iOS? Or, I still should provide an EDIT button?
